Back of my mind i have been wanting to look for this thread some weeks ago. Some of u may have heard of the "new" turmoil in Mindanao island. Sana matapos na esp in Marawi, where school children are affected there esp now that classes have started.

There's an article i also read on Panorama, the sunday magazine of manila bulletin, where it explained our first flag was actually sewn by two women and a child, and not by three women as has been depicted in a previous popular painting

I am glad some business establishment gave me 2 small flags i brought home, when i could not secure some before yesterday, june 12

Thank you, joe. It is both fun and tough to live here, but most livable i can tell (also) from foreign nationals who choose to stay/live. Idk many know abt the crisis in Marawi and not talked abt much either, but here: some prayer items. Our leader does need our prayers more than ever. Thank you.

Duterte: Marawi crisis will be over in a matter of days

Fire Of Elijah,

I pray for your country daily.

Your president has always been, and remains, a very controversial figure.
There were times he distanced himself from the DDS, and times he admitted to running them.

Regardless, he is your president, and I pray he will make good decisions.

Trump has already talked to him at least once, and that seems to have gone well.
I don't think the Obama administration did anything to help relations between our two countries... hopefully things will improve.
(Keep in mind that not only do the America people feel a closeness to your country, but Trump actually has business partners and properties in your country.)

The best thing for all of us to do is pray for our leaders, that they will make good decisions.
The problem here is people from the American Deep State want to use the Philippines as cannon fodder against China.

They want to use the controversial war on drugs as justification to sponsor a regime change in my country and put a puppet president that will follow the Deep State.

Besides, China is not anymore Communist like the days of Mao Zedong; it is in fact a Social Democratic country and Mao Zedong only remains as founder of PRC but the government is not almost following his ideologies of the past.

China is really a friend in deed as long as you don't antagonize it. she can share the resources with the Philippines that is under the PLA.

About the deaths on our president's war on drugs, I think this documentary from BBC will shed light who are the other players aside from the abusive policemen which the president also did not deny. so it is unfair to blame all the deaths of war on drugs on the government.

jameen you are telling a lie, China is not a good friend to us the Philippines she exploited our own West Philippine Seas and islands. China never respect us by not following the ruling of the UNCLOS. She cheaply gave us a less financial aid like Yolanda disaster aid, and even lately in Marawi destruction still she gave less aid compare to other countries and America still the top aid donors, despite Duterte always backbite America. China did not share to us the resources, BUT THEY ARE ONE THAT STEAL OUR RESOURCES! The policemen became abusive and demonize because they follow the public statement of Duterte. Yes, China no longer a communist country but still a dictatorial autocratic leadership full of corruption and no total freedom under communist party, unlike with the socialist countries of Europe their socialism govt is good.

The arbitration ruling has nothing to do with International Court of Justice. no wonder why it has no implementation capability.

and world powers not only China sometimes do not follow the law. the US on its disputes with Nicaragua did the same. Taiwan also disregarded the ruling in fact it has not abandoned its base in one of the islands that is part of 9 dash line.

And true, Duterte attacked the US when Obama was in power because of interfering with our political affairs but not today because Duterte and Trump are getting along with each other.

And why will China give a lot of financial aid when that country knows that our gov't officials will only steal it.

Yes the West likes to give massive aid and in return is to interfere in our politics.

if you want that kind of politics where you agree that other countries to dictate what we should do then go but I myself don't want it.

China stealing our resources? I never heard China built an oil rig in the SCS.

US and China should be both Philippines' friends. I will never agree that our country to be a cannon fodder of any of these 2 world powers and our president is really keen on maintaining closer ties with these 2 countries.

No need to insult another member like this (with the Bible verse basically calling him a child of the devil, just because of some political disagreement or whatever). Please be nice and civil :)

jameen the UNCLOS by the United Nations is already enough that the Philippines could claim our own maritime territory West Philippine Sea, and that arbitration Hauge ruling is just something that second that motion. Furthermore, that sea territory and islands therein is already own by the Philippines and can no longer be considered as disputed territory.

In the case between US and Nicaragua it was not about a territorial disputes, it was not about the greediness of a world power of grabbing a territory, but it was about the fought of opposing ideologies, between good ideology and bad ideology, it was struggle of the good against evil, and of course the US was on the side of good ideology. US making the role as the police of the world preserving democracy and freedom making the world a better place to live. While China of its greediness grabbing a territory and bullying small countries in Asia! Even manipulating the Exclusive economic zone and maritime free navigation.

Taiwan is a very different case with China, Taiwan the distance closer to the Philippines have anyway got the reason to claim that maritime territory closer to them, unlike China is a very far distance nautical miles away from our West Philippine Sea.

You made me laugh! Are you sure that Duterte only hated Obama??? Duterte is a leftist/communist that he hates America, a hardcore anti-US. I can you some links that will prove my statement about Duterte, again to say that this are only SOME because there are too many of his tirades against the US. Click the following links...
http://news.abs-cbn.com/news/05/19/17/duterte-america-will-collapse-one-day

http://globalnation.inquirer.net/149832/duterte-talks-putin-distrust-us-hypocrisy-west

http://globalnation.inquirer.net/14...-not-criminals-blames-us-for-mideast-violence

SEE THE TIME AND DATES OF THE NEWS FROM THE LINKS I PRESENTED, SOME WERE ALREADY AT THE TIME OF PRES. TRUMP WHEN DUTERTE MADE THAT PUBLIC STATEMENTS, PRES. OBAMA NO LONGER A PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.

You made me laugh again! when you say that China will not give a lot of financial aid when that country knows that our gov't officials will only steal it. Take a look of Marawi destruction, that is already the time of Duterte, how much only an immediate aid gave by China compare to other nations??? Even the remaining Yolanda Aid was touched for Marawi!!! You just only prove that China gave less aid to Marawi because the sitting officials now would only steal it!

It is okay the West will interfere just for good with much aid!

How are you sure that China did not done an oil rig?? Did we come to patrol their claim/grab WPS that we must able to discover what they are doing of our resources? China beware us to enter, our poor Filipino fishermen are the most miserable.

I pity you, you want China and US be both Philippines' friends, but what Duterte says is different from you, as he said..."I announce my separation from the United States … both in military, but also economics, America has lost now! I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world — China, Philippines and Russia,''

I have Bible verse for you and other of your companions who spread false information, which is a LIE... in other words "fake news".
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." -John 8:44

// US making the role as the police of the world preserving democracy and freedom making the world a better place to live. While China of its greediness grabbing a territory and bullying small countries in Asia! Even manipulating the Exclusive economic zone and maritime free navigation. //

What the **edited**! that country (USA) is in fact a warmonger nation today that even some Americans here agree.

Any country who will try to ditch the petro-dollar will be invaded or destabilize by the American regime.

remember what they did in Iraq? where is the evidence of WMD? NONE.

the only reason why Iraq was invaded because Saddam planned to ditch the dollar as payment for oil than euros.

It is believed that the Syrian war is because of the pipeline that Assad had disagreed. because the US wants to connect the pipeline from Qatar that will pass through

Never believe that the US is a saint but in fact another bully in the world like China.

// In the case between US and Nicaragua it was not about a territorial disputes, it was not about the greediness of a world power of grabbing a territory, //

almost the same as China and our **edited** hole country. walang pinagkaiba. pero syempre dahil akala mo santong santo ang mga Amerikano ay ibang iba yan.

pareho lang na bullies sa mundo ang US at Amerika.

You know jameen, Ye are of your tatay Digong(father Digong) for he is a liar, and the father of it. Nagmana ka talaga sa tatay mo! Dala mo rin ang pagmumura. That’s why you are also a hardcore anti-U.S. Sa dami-dami kong argumento sa nitong huli, ang nagawa mo lang depensahan ang pagka anti-US ni Digong at siraan ang Amerika. For me Anti-Americanism is no different to Anti-Semitism.

Yes some Americans agree with you to destroy the image and shame the nation USA. Can you afford to shame the US where you enjoy living now? Why live in China and always praise China? As what your tatay Digong always praising China and Xi Ping, while backbiting US.

You tackle about Iraq, did you not know that Iraq is also a bully of his neighboring Arab countries. Kapwa niya Arabo tinatalo, and they invaded Kuwait. Then, who is the saviour? No other than the US that you hated most! Yes there is no WMD in Iraq, only the mouth of Saddam Hussien is WMD for he threaten America to swim their own blood in the land of US when the war confrontation begins, Weapons of MOUTH Destruction hahaha… like the mouth of your father Digong.

In the first place, US was honest and admitted that there’s none WMD, and they never planted an evidence at Iraq. Not like, of planting drugs/shabu and gun to a suspect of the war of drugs of Duterte.

Cannot be deny, both the US and Russia destroyed Syria just because of OIL, the only different that Russia barbarically targeted the mass civilian populace that caused genocide, while US only targeted the military and government installation just to cripple the tyrant govt of Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Remember the news, that a young cop killed an ambassador of Russia for his outrage and sentiments against Russia cruelty to his race in Syria.

Santong santo ba ang US?? jameen did you not know that US has a great role for the whole world together with nation Israel according to Bible prophecies? If not, learn from me if you interested to know it, you will learn a deep Eschatology from me.

jameen hindi mo ba napansin ang dulo sa huling post mo? Sa sobrang galit mo sa US ay dinoble mo talaga binanggit at US at Amerika, at dahil sa pagkabias ninyo ng tatay Digong sa pagpabor ng China, hindi mo maiatim ng budhi mo na itype ang word na China. LoL!

Hi Sir,

Medyo interesado ako sa "deep Escathology" or prophecy. Ano po ba ang itinuturo nyo.

Salamat

Sir, fredoheaven bago ko masagot ang tanong mo. Maitanong ko munna sayo, kung alam mo ba tungkol sa mga prophetic blessings sa lipi ng Israel mula pa nagsimula kay Abraham at Jacob? at ang tungkol rin sa prophetic blessings and curse kay Ismael? Ang huling tanong ang kahulugan nga dalawang Beast at ang Image ng Beast na nasa book of Revelation?
